Recovering from an addiction requires making huge changes to all areas of ones life; behaviours, relationships, families and social networks in order to develop a quality of life.

Primrose donated the planters that ARA chose for one of the darkest areas and Keda, Katrina (counsellors), Corrado (student counsellor) planted them up and Michael, Gary, Lisa, Dante. Ray, David, Stuart, Shelley, Keith posed and smiled and encouraged the counsellors to do some real work for a change!
